Greetings from the Kitchen
For starters you’ll receive a greeting from the kitchen. This consists of wrapped potato and carrot. Such a simple offering, but it’s amazing how the taste of these vegetables comes through. This will warm up your taste buds for the following dishes. Of course, a local Slovenian wine is served to compliment the greeting from the kitchen.
Baked Peppers with Asparagus and Burrata
The baked peppers have a little spice to them. The accompanying burrata cheese is certainly a good match, as is the Slovenian wine. The waiter will tell you as he serves the wine from which region in Slovenia it’s from. Wine lovers will learn a lot about the Slovenian wine (and geography) throughout the meal.
Egg Yolk Fried in Homemade Cracklings, Parsnips Cream and Lovage
When you receive the friend egg yolk covered in homemade cracklings, it will still be steaming and crackling. The chef times his cooking of the dish to perfection, ensuring it arrives at your table with some action! This is an interesting plate as only the egg yolk is included, once you break it, it becomes a delicious sauce for the cracklings. The egg yolk and cracklings dish brings some action and excitement to the table!
Signature Ravioli Dish
The signature dish of the JB Restaurant is its ravioli. This homemade ravioli is filled with cottage cheese, pistachio, meat, cream sauce, goose liver and licorice. It’s probably a combination you’ve never tried before, but works well. As with every dish, the flavor is incredible. The ravioli is complimented with a white wine.
Signature Beef Dish
The signature beef dish is a Beef cube with meat sauce, olive oil, caviar and mustard cream. As you would expect at one of the worlds best restaurants, the beef is tender and cooked to perfection. If I could order any dish again, I would definitely order the signature beef dish. As you would expect, the beef dish is complimented by a local Slovenian red wine.
The Dessert JB was the perfect way to end the meal. Both sweet and tasty, I wish I’d had a double portion!
